It was tough finding people who had early TS1s but no TS2. I did find one person that had a TS1 in early December last year and was waitlisted. They made it off the waitlist in May.

Question - HLS e-mailed me a while back, told me the application was complete and I could use the status checker to keep up with it. Unlike other schools, however, they didn't give me an initial login/password. Same thing has happened with Cornell.

Anyone know what I should do?

wrong thread, see here viewtopic.php?f=7&t=85858
the login/pw for HLS was in the app received email, not the complete email. gluck.

that's almost promising. i remember this one non-trad on LSN from a couple of years ago who had a TS1 and never got TS2. it seems like we have a severe lack of data. i think that will be my boredom project for tomorrow.

ok so at the risk of seeming crazy, i went ahead and looked at 08-09. i looked at the accepted's with a longish time between sent and accepted, large majority of the waitlists, and all of the WL,A and WL,R. i did not look at rejects. i could only find 5 reporting TS1/KB1 anomalies.

these two just had delayed acceptance calls (yay)

these two were WL,A (yay)
http://lawschoolnumbers.com/stasis1138
http://lawschoolnumbers.com/idk

and this one was WL,R (not yay)
http://lawschoolnumbers.com/sealrsqr/jd

self-reporting bias and all, but not bad! :)

That would be me! I just thought I would pop in here and let you all know that I do feel your pain! If any of you need someone to commiserate with/give you hope for later let me know :) I had TS1, then heard nothing until May, when I got a call from KB, and she asked me if I had any additions to my file, and of course I was all "Um, not really..." I did get off the waitlist in the first cycle of waitlist admissions, naturally it was AFTER I had already paid my non-refundable deposit to UVA. If you want to talk to a very very unspectacular person who somehow ended up at HLS anyway, just shoot me a PM. Good luck, and I hope you all hear something very very soon!

did a quick look on LSN just now in terms of TS2 timing last year (so far, this year has pretty much mirrored last).

looks like there was a small batch on the next few mondays after this past monday's equivalent date last year. it looks like mondays are the day to watch. good chance at another small batch on each of the next few mondays.

My only consolation is that according to JR we will know definitively by mid-January.

It looks like most of the people who received TS / KB 1 and had to wait a while for 2 applied pretty late in the cycle. When did everyone have their JR 1? I'm also curious what everyone's stats look like.

I had mine on Thursday (12/10) and I'm going to be keeping my fingers crossed tomorrow. Stat range is: 176-178, 3.75-3.8.

Do you really believe that? I think that I would much rather never get a JR1 than get one but not a JR2. Especially with my borderline stats, I feel like the probability of my not getting a JR 2 if I were to get a JR 1 would be much higher than normal.


Are you kidding me? It's far better to be on the edge of your seat waiting for a call from Harvard than to be doing the same for Cornell, Fordham or Cardozo. Don't be an ingrate. You got the JR1. That's an accomplishment in and of itself, and tons of people would KILL for that opportunity. I would murder my entire immediate family.
